a bit about me

I have been a journalist for more than 25 years working across a number of digital, television, radio, and print platforms. Much of my career has been in broadcasting where I have worked as a Programme Host, Foreign Correspondent, News and Current Affairs Anchor, and Executive Producer for both international and domestic TV channels.

I was based in Europe for several years reporting on globally significant events involving terrorism, conflict, natural disasters, political elections in France and Britain, and I was in Washington D.C in 2008 for Barack Obama’s historic election to the White House.

My career has taken me to Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America, including assignments in Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, South Sudan, Niger and South Africa.

I now work in a strategic communications and storytelling capacity, and I am the founder of The Medicine Gap which profiles the impact of New Zealand’s unfunded medicines crisis, and advocates for the much-needed reform of Pharmac.
